Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answeredThere are several alternative treatments available to treat sinusitis, starting with getting enough rest and liquids. Some other things that you can do include steaming the sinus cavities by placing a large towel over your head and inhaling steaming water from a bowl. You can also inhale the steam while you take a hot shower. Be careful not to put your face too close to the bowl or steam to prevent getting burned. To ease facial pain and pressure, place a wet, warm towel around your face, nose, eyes and cheeks. This will also aid in mucus drainage. If you rinse your nasal passageway with a specially-designed neti pot or nose bulb syringe, your sinuses can become clearer, allowing you to breathe better. For better sleep, your head should be elevated.
